We went on a Saturday around 1pm with 4 people and were racing within about 20 minutes of our sign in process. This is really fun competition. The carts are electric, there are no gas fumes, and the carts are quiet. The only sound you hear are screeching tires! The carts are quick and really give you a taste of racing. It is most fun when everyone in your race likes to compete, as we had one group with some people who really didn't drive well and slowed everyone else down as we tried to lap them. But even with that issue, this was really fun!!

Super fast electric carts. Had a great time with a private race for a birthday party. They can and do throttle your speed which is kind of lame but as long as you drive well they tend to bump you up.

Great attraction for kids and adults, boys above 9 years should not miss it when visiting irvine.
The place was amazing, and the staff were extremely nice and helpfull and at the end of the race participants will be handled a paper that summarize theresult of the race and their performance.
The safety at the place is great. You need one to tow hours will be enough.

My department took about 30 people to this place for a team building event. We had food/drinks in their private room and then began racing. The karts are fairly fast but some faster than others! I won qualifications but then got a much slower car and didn't fare well in the first race. The facility was wonderful and the karts all electric so no exhaust. The worst part was having to wear a helmet but not much you can do about that.

I've only been to K1 speed a couple of times, but have used Groupons each time. Otherwise, it would cost too much for what it is. K1 is an exciting and fun time! I'm not too good on the track here, but still have a good time with it. The staff is really knowledgeable and helpful. They give you good instructions the first time you go out there.
